It is never too early to learn sports skills, and the ‘Summer Sports Camp’ for youngsters four years old to grade 3 provided an opportunity to get started on becoming enthusiastic players. The North Thompson Volunteer and Information Center is sponsored the three day event last week at the Ridge; one of a series of sports camps they have held this summer.

Last weeks three day Basic Skills camp, instructed by Alex Haurpauer and Alissa Lampreau, kept the children actively occupied for four hours, with a break for a bag lunch brought from home.  The cost, only $20 per child.

During the break , the kids chatted about what they really liked best in the camp.  Jesse Stobbe said , “I like to learn to play volley ball, like dribbling, passing, and bumping;  and we will learn to play hockey too”.

Justice Wassmer said he thought, “Learning to be co-operative with people is very good.   We do get a lot of exercise, and we have lots of fun too.”

Sports camp volunteer, Beth Zerr said,  “This camp is such a positive way to keep kids busy, I  would recommend it to all parents of young children. Most of all, the kids have a lively good time while learning new skills.”
